Anita Hill says she'll vote for Biden

Anita Hill says she'll vote for BidenAnita Hill vowed to vote for Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden in the November election.

Biden led the Senate Judiciary Committee in 1991 when Hill testified at the confirmation hearing of then-Supreme Court nominee Clarence Thomas.

The then-Delaware senator joined the panel of all-male senators in aggressively questioning Hill of her allegations that Thomas sexually harassed her while they worked together at the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.

"Notwithstanding all of his limitations in the past, and the mistakes that he made in the past, notwithstanding those, at this point, between Donald Trump and Joe Biden, I think Joe Biden is the person who should be elected in November," Hill told CNN's Gloria Borger in an interview set to air Monday.


Biden transition team shapes up with Obama-Biden alum hires

Biden transition team

A Biden administration-in-waiting is slowly taking shape.

On the Saturday of Labor Day weekend, the Biden transition team announced a long list of new hires, advisers and co-chairs to lead the effort to staff up a potential administration.

“This is a transition like no other, and the team being assembled will help Joe Biden meet the urgent challenges facing our country on day one,” said former senator and longtime Biden aide Ted Kaufman, who is heading up the transition team.

The new group provides the most insight so far into how a Biden administration would look — a mix of the left and the center with many veterans of the Obama administration, particularly those who served in the vice president’s office.


Heavily armed pro-Trump supporters in combat gear clash with BLM protesters marching for Breonna Taylor in Louisville on Kentucky Derby day - while fans start to arrive at Churchill Downs

Armed Trump supporters gather at Churchill Downs

Heavily armed pro-Trump supporters and far-right militia members have gathered near Churchill Downs in Louisville vowing to protect the city ahead of a day of Black Lives Matter protests scheduled to kick off during the annual Kentucky Derby.

Hundreds of men dressed in military gear and armed with semi-automatic weapons were out in force at Cox Park Saturday morning after a number of local social justice organizations announced plans to rally over the police shooting of Breonna Taylor.

A group of self-described 'patriots' and militia members led by a far-right activist identified as 'The Angry Viking' were seen toting guns, American flags, and Trump 2020 signs as they patrolled the area ahead of the demonstrations.




White House directs federal agencies to cancel race-related training sessions it calls ‘un-American propaganda’

Race sensitivity training called una-American propaganda by Trump

President Trump is moving to revamp federal agencies’ racial sensitivity trainings, casting some of them as “divisive” and “un-American,” according to a memo by the White House Office of Management and Budget.

In the two-page memo, OMB Director Russell Vought says Trump has asked him to prevent federal agencies from spending millions in taxpayer dollars on these training sessions. Vought says OMB will instruct federal agencies to come up with a list of all contracts related to training sessions involving “white privilege” or “critical race theory,” and do everything possible within the law to cancel those contracts, the memo states.

The memo, released on Friday, also tells all federal agencies to identify and if possible cancel contracts that involve teaching that America is an “inherently racist or evil country.”


A new Trump ad features some oddly placed footage. Now its owner may sue.

Trump ad sued by France and featured man

A new ad launched by President Trump’s campaign in Wisconsin offers viewers a split universe: The first half displays violence, looting, fires and imagery of Joe Biden shrouded in dark, sinister hues. The second half suddenly brightens, as images of a determined Trump appear against the backdrop of an American flag and military helicopter.

That second, brighter half also shows footage of a man, a little girl and several others busily cleaning up the mess created by violence, as a narrator intones that Trump will protect “Wisconsin families” and “communities.”

But now this ad may become a public relations problem for the Trump campaign.

The video images of the man and the girl appear to be owned by a French news organization that is now strongly objecting to the way they were “taken out of their context” in the ad. The news organization is also objecting to the use of the footage without permission, demanding that it be taken down, and threatening legal action if it is not.


‘Absolutely damnable’: Biden rips Trump over reports he called fallen troops ‘losers’

Biden rips TrumpJoe Biden tore into President Donald Trump on Friday over reports that the president had denigrated America’s fallen soldiers as “losers” and “suckers,” calling the reported comments “disgusting” in one of his most forceful denunciations yet of his Republican rival for president.

“I’m always cautioned not to lose my temper. This may be as close as I've come in this campaign,” the former vice president said at the beginning of remarks billed as a response to the August jobs report. “It’s just a marker of how deeply President Trump and I disagree about the role of the president of the United States of America.”

An emotional Biden invoked the military service of his late son Beau, declaring that “when my son was an assistant U.S. attorney and he volunteered to go to Kosovo while the war was going on as a civilian, he wasn't a sucker.”



‘They ain't buying it’: Biden dismisses Trump’s law-and-order message

Joe Biden in WisconsinJoe Biden, on a visit Thursday to a city roiled by the police shooting of Jacob Blake, scorned Donald Trump’s law-and-order approach and contended that his unity message is resonating more with voters concerned about racial injustice.

Speaking at Grace Lutheran Church in Kenosha, Wis., Biden again condemned the violence that followed the shooting of Blake, while offering himself as a calming influence — a “congenital optimist” bringing hope rather than playing to fears.
